My list of invited talks and seminars can be found on the blog roll of this website.


Teaching & Tutorials

  • 2015: Delivered Lecture and practical tutorial within Newton Fund expertise-building event: ’Host-Pathogen Interactions, Application of Computational Methods to Leishmania & Other Pathogens’. Rio de Janiero, Brazil
  • 2014 & 2015: Lectures to new PhD students on the CIDCATS programme (Combating Infectious Disease: Computational Approaches in Translational Science), specifically on the development and analysis of simulations of biological systems.
  • 2013: Lectures on Computer Science Masters course at University of Birmingham, specifically on analysing simulations of biological systems
  • 2013: First year tutor for undergraduates on the Biological Sciences degree course
  • 2013: Tutor on Widening Participation programme that helps A-Level students achieve offers for a place on the Biological Sciences degree course at Birmingham


Public Engagement

I am committed to outreach activities and communicating our research with members of the public, and have been involved in a number of activities, including:

  • Presented at the annual Pint of Science festival, 2015
  • Provided demonstrations at European Research Night, 2014
  • Provided hands-on demonstrations at the Grand Depart event that started the Tour De France in Yorkshire, 2014
